How do I rebalance a ceiling fan? It is securely fastened to the ceiling.
I asked my hubby about this one and he says try putting new blades on the fan.
Go to Home Depot and buy balance tabs which come in the ceiling fan box. Stick one to each blade (on top) until you get the right balance. Or cut some tabs out of cardboard or duct tape a washer to the blade.
easy fix, just try one on each blade until it balances.
My son balanced mine by clamping a spring-type clothes pin to one of the blades. He said it was for the purpose of seeing just where the balance needed to be, but after more than a year the clothespin is still there and still doing its job. I don't think it shows up too much, as no one has ever commented on it. Ha!
